The Sleep of Reason

I was fourteen when I first saw the Prado. An exhibition of the Caprichos was up at the time. The experience is vivid to this day.

I was thinking of them -especially the "Sleep of Reason"- in regards to the recent Masson/Bataille post... how the creators of "Acephale" were willing to conjure monsters in the time between wars.
